In September 2015 SIGNAL created a spectacular project titled SIM/NEBULA in Prague’s neo-renaissance jewel Rudolfinum.
A 50-minute long projection mapping on the interior of the Dvořák Hall was completed by an outstanding performance of the Czech Philharmonic.
The plot of the projection is divided into seven thematic parts set in the background of the visual show. The parts are connected by the leitmotiv of the life cycle, a journey into the unknown and man’s relationship with his inner world on one side and the universe on the other side. These expressively poetic, futuristic visual poems depict the creation of a cybernetic organism in the acoustic waves of the classical music. From the organic form in the dark void through the futuristic industry to the final massive light eruptions, SIM/NEBULA presents the birth of a new reality.
The uniqueness of the projects lays not only in the interior space chosen for the video mapping but also in the connection of a visual show with a live classical music.
11 international artists and studios participated in this project:
SR PARTNERS (UK), SUPRANUTZ / FREDERICO PELAT (FR), CHAOTIC ATMOSPHERES (CH), CAN BUYUKBERBER (TR), OSMAN KOC (TR), UNDREAM (TR), NOHLAB (UK/TR), THE MACULA (CZ), PETR KOLL (CZ), JAN SLADECKO (CZ), DENIS STEFANIDES (SK)
This is a process reel of the project SIM/NEBULA we have done in an international collaboration. 45 minutes of expressively futuristic visual poems, shaping the emergence of cybernetic organism counting down its time code in live acoustic waves of classical music conducted by Jiri Belohlavek and Czech philharmonic orchestra. The story made of seven sections/themes, set against the background of the visual show, which uses technological and creative attributes of projection mapping, VFX and motion graphics. The project was commissioned by Ceska sporitelna to celebrate 190 years of their existence and the new partnership with the Czech Philharmonic.
